8:07 am
exactly. >> as a doctor, when do you think it is right for agle mastectomy. >> so, difficult question and obviously as you said it does have to be individualized but this is really the why. three kind of main reasons why a mastectomy. number one, if they have a genetic mutation like the brca mutation that we have's talked about and most people know about, second reason, if it's a large tumor in a small size breast because, again, we have to take into account cosmetic issues, the risk of being disfigured with the treatment of the cancer and lastly, patient preference. say, i don't want to go through that increased surveillance, stress, follow-up, long term and so i want to choose what i think is the best course of action. >> and quite a few way. when you look at it there's some controversy about does it really prevent future recurring even getting it in the first place if you have a mastectomy. >> this is what most know, robin.
8:08 am
this for some time, the risk of recurrence or death after being treated with lump lumpectomy with radiation is the same. so this treatment -- >> that is surprising. >> when people hear that -- you think -- >> absolutely the same so this is ad to have with that breast surgeon and needs to be right about them. treating the whole woman and not just the body part. >> each woman and men go through breast cancer, as well. thinking of senator that she has been recently diagnosed and said the prognosis is good so we're thinking of her. over to lara. here's what's coming up on our "gma morning menu." seen on safari getting up close with the most majestic animals in africa and then we are learning more about a tribe there. amy joining in onu've never seen before and then from morning time to prime time it's my turn today to switch jobs and see if i can out cut it in the acting world with

8:14 am
we are moving through this 100-mile crate irhere with animal planet's daveheaded to where the drones are right now. those live drones over that herd of elephants. it's simply incredible. we have five live cameras for you at home to be on safari with us so as we're, so are you at home and, dave, i want to take a look at this drone footage and these elephants. we've seen these guy, right. >> we saw them fighting the>> yes, we did. >> what happens is when there's babies around which is right around now the girls, they kick all the young boys out so they don't hurt the babies so now group hanging out, bachelor's group, boys will be boys. >> called satellite males because they hang out near the herd but not allowed to be in the herd. >> i love what you told me about the power of their trunks, absolutely, one of their biggest strengths. they have over 100,000 muscles in their trunk. >> we've shown you the rhino and the lion and the elephant is the thirdcies here in
8:15 am
beautiful but they're certainly unfortunately a commodity on the black market in the asian >> we need to do more to protect them. >> what happened was when the asian markets grew and more new wealth you needed to have ivorythat rhino horn. there's a lot of time and energy into keeping them safe. >> specifically in the crater there is a natural barrier that a volcano once stood higher than mt. kilimanjaro. this is a protected area but there are also measures in place from s, tell me a little about what they do here that's been so successful. >> one of the big things i said, it's hard to get in here without being seen. but i think thehis park it was the first park ever to partner with the local people so on top of the anti- anti-poaching patrol and geography all the local
8:16 am
recognize and tell anti-poaching people there's a problem. >> look at this picture of an it's just incredible. you are seeing this elephant move through the tall grasses in the middle of the great migration here at the ngorongoro seeing him do what so many, 2 million animals are doing right now, live, they are in search of the nutrient rich grass this is the largest mammal oal on the planet. imagine how much food they have to eat. only digest 30% of the food they put hat grass and putting it in. he's going to put in a lot to be that big. >> yeah, and these animals travel far and wide. >> yeah, another fun fact i likes is that they actually talk to each other with a subsonic so we can't hear it but can talk from miles and miles to each other to tell each other how they are strong family. >> i was hoping we would see what we saw yesterday, those two young males sparring. >> it's part of the social structure.
8:17 am
point want to breed with the herd so the boys thatle tussles right when if comes to breeding time the strongest, the fittest, he gets to have time with the ladies. >> but i also love speaking ofs we look at these four cameras live over had incredible herd of elephants. the women are in charge. >> women, it's a hierarche girls decide where they go, when they go and how they go. if they don't want a boy around send him out. >> just like us. just like us, dave. >> absolutely. ladies rule the e're moving through the crater and, oh, we're here. we made it. oh, my goodness. i looked behind and saw the elephants. you're seeing them too. they are so beautiful but m the rest of the animals in the crater here. they move around. do they like to be alone. >> it's not so much the seclusion. it's just a matter of they'rengs and moving in certain areas so the herd that's close is closer to this end of the park so what happens is, the crater has a lot
8:18 am
flamingos, a forested area and they're in the area that the girls like the most, the trees, because the herd will be there. >> it's so showing this to you live with our five cameras but the one camera you really can get an immersive 3d virtual reality experience is that im-360 cameraorest here. >> that's where the black ryan and elephants will be. >> you can check it out on your you can pan it, look up, look down, zoom in and really see everything as it's happening here in the crater during the great migration and this is something that is so it's one of the wonders of the world. >> natural wonder of the world and the reason is there's so many. never seen mass amounts of animals move together as a ly what they'll do is they'll follow the rain. the rain comes down and they have something to eat and when
8:19 am
wildebeests and zebra and gazelle all come to have their babies. >> you say zebra, i say zebra. you say say africa gets to name the animal because they have it. i grew up in north america so i used to call it zebra and wildebeest. >> you're correct and i'm wrong. it's all right. with all of those millions, 2 migrating that is when the lions come out to play because they have a steady food source. >> all the predators so in the crater here you've got eight prides of lions and you've got g eating, unfortunately, all the new nutrient that's coming in which is the animal. >> nutrient rich grass because of itsings. >> absolutely. the reason why they have all their babies at the same time protection in numbers. it's the odds of, hey, i won't be the one that getse of these predators but all the babies are on the ground so only a small percentage can be grabbed by predators.
8:20 am
looking at these live picturesust slowly moving. you pointed this out to me yesterday. they look like they're moving in slow motion. you say they can outrun any man. >> the slowest elephant would outrunwow. >> you can see the ears flapping because it's so hot right now so he or she is cooling he runs blood through his ears. >> isn't this incredible back in new york. >> he's saying that the slowest he fastest man in the world, is that what we just heard. >> that's a true statement. >> that's glad you guys explained the great migration because we were all wondering where they're going from and where they're education. >> amy doing a great job holdingorting on the road, fast speeds doing an awesome job. >> i also learned my house is just like an elephant herd. women rule. with you.

you say they're sleeping in there during the day and nighttime come out and have their grass. certain types they have pools like that where certain males will get a territory in that water and they'll try to of girlfriends to come and hang out with them and those are his girls. >> those are his girls. the males are in charge in the hippo family. >> i doubt it f the year they're more aggressive but doesn't mean they're in charge. >> during the day do they ever get out of the lake or re they get the grass, on land so that's probably what makes them so dangerous is because they're walk you go around at nighttime. there are people walking around at nighttime without flashle they're dark and gray, if a hippo gets nervous he reacts with his mouth open and starts biting. >> those jaws are something. how big, how heavy are these >> they can be up to two tons. >> wow. >> so once again we talked about fast elephants. you'll never outrun a hippo. >> all right, dave. i'll send it back to you in new york.
